problem. you know, clinton took that approach in 1993. he cut defense way back. i think the president could do a little bit more to attract some people over to his side if he did that. but i'm just struck by the fact that we've got this completely outside game. >> right. >> there's not a lot going on on the inside in terms of real negotiation. but we'll get there. >> and steve, this is a point we brought up last hour. you know, everybody is debating over raising top rates for people making $250,000 or more. you look -- tom's talking about $88 trillion. you look at the small percentage, these tax increases as part of the bigger problem, and you realize that we're not even having a serious discussion right now. we're obsessed on something that's not going to save us. >> well, that's true. first, with respect to what david said, i think partly why they're playing an outside game is because they've been criticized in the past of playing too much of an inside game. the president's criticized himself for not taking his message outside, telling his story. secondly, i do think the president h

the defense. 28-0 there. brady, four touchdown passes. starts the fourth quarter. hits brady on the screen pass. texans finally catch a break when j.j. watt, a beast, forces a fumble but patriots fall on the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. everything going their way. lands in a route, 42-14, patriots, just one game back of the texans for the playoff race. patriots have won seven games in a row. the only thing hotter, peyton manning and broncos won eight games in a row. >> just not as good as patriots? >> just not added good as patriots. i take them every time. >> i wonder whether they have inflated records. atlanta had a bad week sunday losing to carolina. >> you reminded me of that game. i was watching the falcons. the way it went, i'm thinking about back in high school, mika, they have raccoons. run across the stadium 50-yard line. i'd be running as quarterback, and the raccoon get in my way. those were the good old days. things like that don't happen anymore. >> funny you bring that up. in cincinnati, fans come for the football and there was a raccoon inside the stadium. sunday's

to the "politico playbook." defense cuts have been a bit of a sticking point. we don't talk about them much. it's been all about taxes. you say some republicans now open to looking at trimming the defense budget. >> well, they are. and this is another part of this republican reboot we're seeing just in the last week. three big issues where the republican party is changing before our eyes. immigration, they want to talk about president obama about it, work with him on it, gay marriage. the house leaders who asked for one of the supreme court cases, silent since the court took it. now defense cuts. more and more republicans are saying that they're willing to talk about it. >> good. >> saying it junt cuts their credibility on other spending issues. >> good. >> it's the pentagon. >> there is so much waste in the pentagon. it's one of the few bureaucracies you can't audit. it is impossible. whether you're talking to peter peterson, dave walker, they tell you, you can't audit the pentagon. it is impossible. >> and yet there are some republicans you say who are willing to go out on a ledge and say it'

, on reforming those systems to save medicare and medicaid, social security, cutting defense, reforming the taxes, then do not meet -- if he doesn't want to meet halfway, but i've got to tell you, i am heartened with what i saw in the president's tone yesterday. i loved hearing him tell a group of americans yesterday, hey, we're going to get this thing done. i feel good about it. i love that he agreed to sit down with john boehner one on one. richard, you've done negotiations on all levels. i really liked the tone the president was sending. and by the way, i felt like charles krauthammer did a couple of days ago. because the president seemed to be saying -- and you've said it, too, along with geithner -- we won. the other side's going to cave. the president's changing his tone, and i think that is great not only for the american people, i think it's great for the president. >> i think you're right. there's a sense that people have once again remembered the basic rule of negotiation. in a funny sort of way, you've got to help the guy you're negotiating with because you need a partner to succeed. y

with medicare? what do you do with defense spending? what do you do with nondefense spending? >> and something needs to be done with all three things that you just mentioned, correct? >> yes. >> something really significant, correct? >> but it doesn't mean take medicare, it doesn't mean raising the medicare age. >> why not? >> because i'll tell you, i was in yun in youngstown a year or so ago. a woman who had no insurance said to me, she said -- she was 63 years old -- she just said i just need to live a year and a half more so i can get on medicare and get health insurance. >> right. so maybe the age doesn't raise for her, but what about for others? why can't you guys come up with a framework that works now? >> means testing. there's this whole view that 70-year-olds -- >> we're not saying that. >> no, but somewhere it was social security at 70, 67, now you raise it another year. people that work in a diner, people that are on their feet all day long in retail or construction or manufacturing, you know, all of us can work till we're 70, perhaps, god willing. >> so means testing? >> maybe. tha

. >> and he's defensive about it. and he's stubborn about it. there's something much deeper going on. he understands football, rex ryan, so he knows objectively that mark sanchez is not getting the job done and hasn't for the last couple of years. so it defies credibility that you wouldn't at least give another guy a shot. or when you did give another guy a shot in greg mcelroy, he won the game for you, so maybe give him a shot this week. >> i can understand saying tim tebow's not the quarterback that i want to go with, but you had mcelroy who played on a national championship team, he grew up with his father being a coach for the dallas cowboys. he gets it. he came in off the bench last week, won the game, and you're not dressing him the next week? it's like rex ryan wants to be fired. >> it's selfish also because you have to say as a coach, i want to give these other guys a chance to win. and we'll start mark, but we're going to go with the guy that can help win this game because everybody's practicing hard and we want to win which makes it even more curious because rex is a good coach
